Isaiah McKenzie

“We think that he can do a lot. He can carry the ball. He’ll probably be a fifth wideout that can do a lot of things on the offensive side, so that’s a luxury to have … But also, when you have only 46 spots on Sunday, they’re valuable. To be able to have a guy that can do as many things as he can do with that speed was very valuable to us.”~John Elway on Isaiah McKenzie.
